Class Description

Relationships are beautiful and complicated. Whether it's ending an engagement, getting a divorce, planning a wedding, or relearning how to love yourself, sometimes you just have to write through it. In this multi-genre class, we will explore the complexities, joys, and memories of our present and past relationships. Original essays, poems, and short stories based on your relationships will be crafted in class. We'll workshop up to three original pieces with a fellow writer in class. Writers will have the opportunity to share their pieces during our weekly class open mic. Each writer will conclude the class with at least two polished pieces. Poems, essays, and stories are welcome! Writers in this class will also explore dating in a digital age—we're going to dig deep into dating app horror, steamy, and magical love stories. Together we'll read My Soul Looks Back by Jessica B. Harris and Seven Days in June by Tia Williams. We'll read a variety of essays written by women over the age 50, Black and women of color, and LGBTQ+ women about relationships. Each student will also have a chance to bring a song that represents the relationship they are exploring in writing. Come to this course with an open mind and willingness to write honestly about relationships.
